Default avet reels?

I was looking around at some bottom fishing reels and the avets caught my eye. If I were to get one it would probably be the SX for nearshore snapper fishing as I only have a 20 foot boat. Anyone have any pros cons or better choices for the money?

I have a few avet SX's filled with 400yds of 50 lb power pro on SA-JG 510MFB daiwa saltiga jigging rods and I love them. Fun little combo for snapper, but i've caught jacks up to about 40lbs on them too. just gotta use that thumb a little

I have 2 LX models and bought my wife a SX , all spooled with Power Pro.Awesome reels, hauled in loads of snapper and AJ's with them. Six color choices, and best of all MADE IN THE USA!

I have a JX for sale if interested in the for sale section. It's handled AJ's and snapper flawlessly for me.

I am slowly replacing my entire collection of reels with Avets. Stopped in at C&H lures in Jacksonvile last year to pick up Penn torque and the guys turned me on to the Avets. All the charter boat captians over their are using them.
